Golf Scholarship Dinner

The English Montreal School Board (EMSB) distributed 43 cash scholarships of $500 each on Tuesday, November 22 to students from the graduating class of 2011 at a ceremony that was held at the St. Pius X Facility in Ahuntsic. 

These scholarships were funded from the proceeds of the seventh EMSB Scholarship Golf Tournament, held in June 2010. Scholarships were awarded to high school students who are continuing their studies in a post-secondary educational program and they are divided into two categories: Category I scholarships were presented to students who have demonstrated a high academic achievement as well as involvement in school life activities such as leadership, volunteerism, student council, school sports, representing the school in different events. Category II scholarships were awarded to students who have persevered in the face of overwhelming odds and personal difficulties.
